If you’ve ever attended a 1500+ person conference and tried to meet as many people as you can during that time, you’ll understand what our experience at Fluent Conf 2016 was like! Two weeks ago, a handful of us from the SparkPost Dev team had the opportunity to show off the SparkPost API, walk people through our various client libraries, explain webhooks and inbound routes, and in general remind folks just how important email is to their company’s day-to-day functionality.

We spoke with front-end web developers, software engineers, CTOs, and founders alike, and walked away with valuable feedback about our product and how we can even better serve our community.

We also had a chance to talk about the changes that we’ve made lately, and the online community that is forming around SparkPost.

Last but not least, I had the chance to speak at Ignite on Tuesday night. While most of the conversations at the conference revolved around monitoring, security, and website performance, my talk focused on monitoring those of us who are responsible for those things. So often, we push ourselves to get everything “just right” at work, monitoring every angle so as to ensure the best performance, but we fail to take a step back and make sure that we’re monitoring ourselves. Keep an eye out for the video on O’Reilly’s Youtube channel.

Missed talking to us at Fluent but want to see us on the road sometime soon? We’ll be hacking away at bitcamp in just a few weeks and then heading back to San Francisco for Twilio’s Signal Conference. Then it’s off to Kansas City, MO for Kansas City Developer Conference in June. As always, keep an eye on our Developer Hub to see where we’ll be next. In the meantime, come hang out with us in Slack.
